We're Answering Your Questions All About Linen

Haven’t made the linen sheets switch yet? That’s okay! You probably have a few questions and we’re here to help. Answering some of your top questions about sleeping in the lap of linen luxury:

How do you take care of them?

The top question we get asked has to do with how to care for linen sheets. Afterall, a natural, impossibly soft, and breathable material has to be difficult to care for, right? Wrong! Linen sheets couldn’t be easier to maintain. First wash in cool or cold water separately before your first use. You want the softest and cleanest sheets possible. Use a mild eco-friendly cleaner on your sheets, no fabric softener as it can hinder linen’s natural absorbent properties, and ideally hang them up on the line to dry. That’s all there is to it – cold water, line dry when possible, and enjoy your sheets.

What if I can’t line dry my sheets?

While we don’t recommend always popping them in the dryer, a gentle tumble dry on a low heat setting is okay.  The most important thing to remember is that linen doesn’t like heat. A gentle tumble dry when you need to should keep your sheets in good standing.

How comfortable is linen?

If you’ve never used linen sheets before, you’re probably wondering what the fuss is all about. Linen naturally regulates body temperature, it’s naturally absorbent, and it gets softer with every wash and every use. If you find yourself falling more and more in love with your linen sheets as time goes on, it’s not just your imagination, they really do continue to soften with age!

Is linen a good pick for summer?

During the summertime, people who tend to sleep hot can really struggle to get good sleep. Bring linen into the equation and you will definitely have better sleep. The weave in linen sheets keeps the fabric breathable so you’re always getting proper airflow; you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Is natural really worth it?

Another huge question we’re always asked is “Are linen sheets really worth it?” The answer to that is a resounding yes! Opting for a natural fibre fabric like linen is softer, better for you, and better for the environment when compared to synthetic fabrics. The best part? Your linen sheets are an investment that are built to last.
